QTVOTD: Yes, behind doors too…

“Keep your conduct among the Gentiles honorable, so that when they speak against you as evildoers, they may see your good deeds and glorify God on the day of visitation.” 1 Peter 2:12 ->me: Conduct here refers to a day-by-day pattern of life.  At work, this is something I keep on the forefront of my mind and in my actions during interactions with both fellow employees as well as customers.  What I have found is that the outward common space interactions and behavior ring very true to reflecting this command…but behind closed doors in 1:1s where I might be venting or ‘soliciting feedback’, the flesh of my heart can rear its head.  I can find myself being critical of others, maybe evening whining, being manipulative, and other worldly common/normal corporate workplace back biting can happen.  Scroll up and read yesterday’s verse again…<hanging head low> I have so far to go.  I am so thankful for God’s mercy and grace while He works in me to reveal these barren/unchecked areas of my walk that need cleaned up.
